BREAKING: Chicago Concert Moves To U.S. Cellular Center
The Chicago concert scheduled for Saturday night, May 18th is STILL ON.
However, the venue has changed as it will move from the McGrath Amphitheatre to the U.S. Cellular Center. Those who've purchased tickets for the show are being notified and the original tickets will be valid. Forecast inclement weather---including the chance of rain, thunderstorms and lightning that evening--was given as the reason.
VenuWorks Executive Director Michael Silva stated:
The safety of our patrons and staff is our number one priority, and the increased risk of lightning strikes and substantial rainfall predicted for Friday into Saturday evening is concerning. We feel this move will be to the benefit of our patrons and the artist.
To repeat, the previously scheduled Chicago concert is moving FROM the McGrath Amphitheatre TO the U.S. Cellular Center Saturday night.
The concert starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are still available through Ticketmaster and U.S. Cellular Center box office.
